Yes but thats a burden the NBA and NFL was willing to absorb because in the NBA, the existing contracts length were 4-5 years? and the NFL obviously contracts are not guaranteed. The NHL would be paying out existing contracts for the next 12 years. In essence that 50/50 would in actuality be 50+ players until that final contract is paid out.
